Attention seeking is when you post nice pictures of yourself with captions like, "I'm so ugly" or "Gosh, why can't I be beautiful?!" even though it is very obvious you are anything but, and are simply fishing for compliments.

It's not actually my name, more like a nickname, my name is actually Mahnoor but I hate it for obvious reasons your name is beautiful! and I don't really think a picture can be attention seeking, I think it depends more on the caption or comment they put underneath it

Just nice pictures is fine. If you want to take selfies of yourself because you're confident in your appearance, or because you just like selfies, then please do!! I have no issue with that. Captions are also fine, they're only not fine when you're clearly using them to fish for compliments.

If you think your legs are sexy then, by all means, take as many pictures as you want. Not attention seeking, just being confident.

This, also a totally non-specific passive aggressive status like "some people should just keep their mouth shut". Inevitably people will reply with "hey, what's up" and then the inevitable "inbox me" from the original status poster.

Start posting 'em and we'll tell you when it gets to attention-seeking levels ... y'know, to find out how many it takes :sexface:

Hahahaha, I'm crying because this is so true!!!! OROROROR, "why is life so hard" followed by "what's wrong?" and then "nothing/i don't want to talk about it", I hate that.

Fishing for compliments is usually attention seeking.

I hate when people upload pix on FB and comment on them like "UGH look like trash today" - If you looked like trash, why would you upload it? or people that upload about 50 selfies where you haven't changed in each photo with "like for like" "comment for comment" - this isn't Myspace, nobody cares that you have 50 people/strangers like your photo.

Posting statuses like "omg so wasted" or "omg don't you hate it when friends stab you in the back" encouraging people to ask if you're okay where you casually respond, "I'm ok, nvm" - just take it to Jeremy Kyle and get it over with.

why?

because practicing on yourself with a foundation that's 5 shades away from your skin tone, clumpy mascara, colouring in your face with eyeliner, contouring badly and constant-excited eyebrows doesn't qualify you as a make-up artist.
